Daviss: oh my!
Daviss: ok wb vkn How many sections are there Selma
Selma: We have arbitrarily divided it up into 13 sections..
Daviss: I hope they are all readable
Selma: So far most are.. We are going to be calling on more volunteers, but we wanted to figure out the best way to do it..and how we wanted it first
Daviss: I would love to tackle the one in Grimes County that my gg grandmother is buried. Someone said though that most are broken and not readable.. Its supposed to be an old slave cemetery I wanted to go back there the first time I went but the snakes were out and about lol
